TJ. I can safely assume you are trying to put a theological strait jacket on speaking in tongues? You actually think that when a person speaks in tongues it is the Holy Spirit speaking to itself? Do you also think that the gift of healing is the Holy Spirit healing itself?
Look. When the gift of tongues is manifested, it is OUR spirit speaking to God directly. This line of communication bypasses our emotional and psychologcal hangups. And allows us to confess those things we may be unwilling or unable to bring out into the open.
You are clearly afraid of the gifts of the Spirit and therefore are attempting to build a theological box to stuff God into so YOU will feel more comfortable.
Just because YOU lack the discernment to tell a "familiar" spirit from the Holy Spirit doesn't mean everyone else does.
Sure TR. The spiritual realm can be a little scary. But I KNOW my Master's voice now....and He's no "familiar" spirit.
The discussion of the manifestation the "sign gifts" on an open forum has and will lead to nothing but confrontation and hurt feelings on both sides.
I would encourage you to move on to something more substantial and meaningful like the gospel of Jesus and how He died to set men free from their sins.
